Sonim introduces XP1300 Core rugged smartphone
Get tough with the latest Sonim XP1300 Core rugged smartphone, where it is the latest product from the folks over at Sonim themselves. After all, tough and no-nonsense handsets have long been the forte of the company, and the Sonim XP1300 Core will break new ground especially where waterproofing technology is concerned. Why do we say so? Well, it is the first IP-68 rated GSM handset in the world, which means you are able to leave it fully submersed in 2 meters of water for long periods of time without worrying about it not working after that. Additional hardware features include a 2-inch high-resolution, scratch-resistant display and a noise-cancelling microphone, giving workers who hang out and perform their daily grind even under the harshest conditions without having to worry about whether their handset is able to perform or not.
Of course, you can say that this is no ordinary phone, which means it isn’t meant for ordinary people either. We don’t suppose that Sonim would stop any average Joe from picking one up though, especially if you seem to suffer from frequent bouts of butteritis fingeris (you heard it here first on Coolest Gadgets!) and seem to drop your newly purchased gadgets all the time, everywhere. The Sonim XP1300 Core is able to adopt to just about any environment, being Sonim’s first product built on their very own 4th generation rugged platform.
Other wonders associated with this smartphone include it being shock and water resistant, as well as being dust proof so that you are able to keep in touch with family, friends and superiors even if you’re trapped in a mine while waiting for a rescue squad to get you out. Apart from noise cancellation, you will also find that the waterproof connectors come in handy, while an improved display that comes in the formof Gorilla Glass adds to its overall toughness. Not only that, the Sonim XP1300 Core US meets MIL-810G certification for salt, fog, humidity, transport shock, and thermal shock. It will hit the market this coming November for $399 a pop sans contract, now how about that?
